When Penelope Taberner (Sophie Thompson – Detectorists) goes to stay with her Uncle Barnabas (Gerald James – The Man with the Golden Gun) and Aunt Tissie (Elizabeth Bradley – Coronation Street) on their remote, ancient Derbyshire farm, she begins to see spooky visions.
Travelling back to Tudor times, she soon uncovers a plot to free Mary Queen of Scots in order to overthrow Elizabeth I. Unfortunately her very own ancestors, the Babington family, are responsible for the treason. Penelope already knows the tragic fate that awaits the Scottish Queen but can she stop history from following its natural course?
This mysterious and charming five-part BBC drama inspired by the real life Babington Plot, was produced and directed by Dorothea Brooking (The Secret Garden), and stars Sophie Thompson in her first TV appearance, alongside the late Simon Gipps-Kent (Great Expectations).
